Do You See This Side?
Thu Emerald is your paper. It is the official publication of the
student body and as such its ownership is vested in you. You are the
stockholders and it is to serve and please you that the staff puts in
its many hours each day to turn out a sheet which may be an honor
to the University of Oregon. The paper which you read each morn
ing—and you do read it, do you not?-—is the work of over iifty men
and women who have won places on the staff in competition—all with
just one end in view—to produce a good Emerald.
Each spring you elect those whom you wish to guide the policies
of the Emerald—and it must have policies if it is to justify its exist
ance in Ibis wide awake University community, it must take a vital,
active part in all that has to do with the building of a Greater Oregon.
The Emerald has scrupulously tried to keep its skirts out of the mud,
to remain aloof from clique, from party, from out side individual in-:
fluence. Its policies are the expression of its editor and its board of
editors and arise from a whole-hearted desire to do their conception
of the right thing ever and always. These policies are not intended as
an absolute expression of campus opinion. They are intended, and wt.
have so tried to keep them, as the honest expression of those whom
you have chosen to run the paper.
But—it. is your paper. You may not be taking sufficient interest
in it if you don’t find yourself in disagreement with it on occasions
—for the E merald hopes never to leave a good fight unentered and
there are two sides to every fight and sometimes a third. So if you
don’t like what appears in the editoral columns or in any other part
of your Emerald make your sentiments known. The Emerald office
is always open; the communication column in your paper is always
open to you. Use them both that your paper may be a better paper.
A Worthy Example.
The interesting report of the meeting of the Condon Club carried
in a news article in The Emerald yesterday suggests a vast field of,
possibilities to other similar organizations on the campus. In all too,
many cases the primary purpose in such organizations tends to be
overshadowed by social functions.
This is a serious mistake, and the real benefits to be received from
such organizations are being overlooked. Research work and re
ports on various phases will do much toward maintaining that close
relationship between the courses of study and the organization-which
should be the primary purpose.
Regular meetings could then well afford to be held, and there
would be a corresponding increase in the attendance of the mem
bers at these meetings. Criticism is made on many of the American
college campuses that there are too many of these clubs and honorary
fraternities in existence and that the good which comes from their
sessions is fur below the possibilities.
Let's foster the idea of research in the subjects in which the mem
bers are interested and reports to be submitted by the members at
the regular gatherings. The benefits will be of untold value.
A New Era.
Last night at o’clock saw communication established between
The Emerald and The it. A. C. Barometer by means of the radio
Claude Palmer, editor of the Aggie publication, sent to The Emerald
the first message of greeting over the new line of communication,
which was answered by The Emerald.
This is the first link in the chain which will eventually bind all
the members of the Pacific Intercollegiate Press Association in a
better and quicker news service for the college and University news
papers. It is of epoch-marking significance and the future holds un
limited possibilities in the way of expansion.
The step has met with the hearty cooperation of the newspaper
association on the Pacific Coast, and the other members of the org
anization are rapidly installing their radio apparatus. With the com
pletion of the installation of the sets by all the members, which it is
expected will be in the very near future, the association will enter
a new era of progress.
Notices will be printed in this column
for two issues only. Copy must be in the
office by 4 :30 o'clock of the day on which
it is to be published and must be limited
to 26 words.

OREGON GRSPPLERS LOSE
FIVE TO ONE TO 0. A. C.
Wegner Wins Only Decision
The varsity wrestling team dropped
five out of the six matches to O. A. C.
in the armory last night, Wegner being
the man on the Oregon squad who won
a decision. In most classes, especially
the heavyweight divisions, the Aggie
grapplers outweighed the varsity men.
All of the matches wore hard fought,
but Coach Bathbun’s proteges were
In the featherweight division neither
man could pin his opponent but Wegner
(128 pounds) was given a decision over
Fulton (126 pounds) on account of his
aggressiveness. After six minutes of
wrestling, Hubbard (1.18) succeeded in
pinning Whitcomb (134) to the mat.
In the second match between the two,
Hubbard won a decision.
One of the hardest fought bouts was
between the two welterweights, Kirtley
and Butterviteh. Kirtlev Weighed one
pound more than the collegian but

two middleweights, both weighed in at

and won each of his matches by a fay,I
the first in 2 minutes and 45 seconds!
and the second in three minutes. In
the heavyweight class Johnson was too
much for Bradway, who was outweighed i
20 pounds. After the first match, dur
ing which Bradway managed to stav j
away from the big Ag grappler and got i
a draw, Johnson e asily pinned the '
lighter varsity man to the mat. The
first fall came after 1 minute and 25

Ted Thve, middleweight champion of

if the Oregon City Enterprise, attended
the Washington Newspaper Institute at
the University of Washington in Seattle

Dean Allen attended the sessions for
the first two days, bfit was confined to
the University of Washington infirmary
Friday and Saturday with an attack of
the “flu,” which, he states, is as preve
lant there as here.
A paper, “Directing the reporter,”
which Dean Allen had prepared, was

by Dean Spencer of the Washington
school of Journalism. In the paper, the
efficiency of the schools of journalism

over $50,000 for its members in the
purchasing of paper. Professor Thach
er's proposed eastern trip, on which he
intends to interest national advertising

From A Faint Blue Glow
To Modem Miracles
FJ* DISON saw it first—a mere shadow of blue light streaking across the
terminals inside an imperfect electric lamp. This “leak” of elec
tric current, an obstacle to lamp perfection, was soon banished by
removing more air from the bulbs.
But the ghostly light, and its mysterious disappearance in a high
vacuum remained unexplained for years.
Then J. J. Thomson established the electron theory on the trans
mission of electricity in a partial vacuum—and the blue light was
understood. In a very high vacuum, however, the light and appar
ently the currents that caused it disappeared.
One day, however, a scientist in the Research Laboratories of the
General Electric Company proved that a current could be made to pass
through the highest possible vacuum, and could be varied according to
fixed laws. But the phantom light had vanished.
Here was a new and definite phenomenon—a basis for further re
Immediately, scientists began a series of experiments with far reach
ing practical results. A new type of X-ray tube, known as the Coolidge
tube, soon gave a great impetus to the art of surgery. The Kenotron

netron, made possible long distance radio telephony and revolutionized
radio telegraphy. And the usefulness of the “tron” family has only
The troublesome little blue glow was banished nearly forty years
ago. But for scientific research, it would have been forgotten. Yet
there is hardly a man, woman or child in the country today whose
life has not been benefited, directly or indirectly, by the results of
the scientific investigations that followed.
Thus it is that persistent organized research gives man new tools,
makes available forces that qtherwise might remain unknown for
